Privacy Policy

Internet Privacy and Cookies Policy

Franchise Local 2You are committed to safeguarding and preserving the privacy of our visitors.

This Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide to us, or that we collect from you whilst you visit our site, when signing up for updates or registering to attend the events we manage, and how we use cookies on this website.

We do update this Policy from time to time so please do review this Policy regularly.

Where does this policy apply?

This privacy policy applies to all data collected and processed on all websites, databases and their associated systems which are owned or managed by Opening Doors & Venues and which include its primary websites and any event registration sites used to collect information pertinent to individual events.

Why do we collect and process your personal data?

In order to provide the range of services that enable Opening Doors & Venues to plan, manage and deliver our range of events we collect and process certain information which will differ slightly per event. We do this when you personally subscribe to OD&V newsletters, request to be notified of upcoming events and when registering and attending the events and conferences we deliver.

Disclosing your information

We will not share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes unless you have given your explicit consent for us to share your contact details with
event or conference sponsors upon registration. We won't pass on your details to any other websites.

We will only pass on your personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so.

Limited data will be shared with event and conference venues for the legitimate interest of on-site security, catering and layout planning.

Your right to update or delete the data

GDPR 2018 explicitly states that you must have an opportunity to change your personal preferences in respect of data we may hold (this includes deleting your data). Electronic communications sent via MailChimp will always give you the option to update your preferences at any time or unsubscribe from that database. Each of our event websites include contact information where you can email or phone us.
